The first trailer for Jellystone!, a comedic animation series from HBO Max, was released on Thursday. check out the trailer below
The series revives the world of Hanna-Barbera cartoons, bringing back characters that haven’t been seen on television in 30 years in some cases. C.H. Greenblatt (Chowder) is the showrunner and executive producer, and the show centers on classic Hanna-Barbera characters like Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, and Huckleberry Hound, as well as some extremely deep-cut characters like inept crime-fighters El Kabong and Baba Looey, Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har Har, the genie Shazzan, the little duck Yakky Doodle, and a whole lot more.

For aficionados of old-school animation, the first trailer is a game of ID-the-character. Some of these characters, such as Peter Potamus, Augie Doggie, and Wally Gator, made guest appearances on heavily referential cartoon series such as Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, or were used in Cartoon Network bumpers, but others are only known to fans of older cartoon revival blocks and previous crossover shows such as Laff-A-Lympics.
